Point guards Derrick Rose and Stephen Curry are considered Team USA roster locks. That left Wall, Damian Lillard and Kyrie Irving, who played at Duke under Krzyzewski, competing for 1-2 spots. As the odd man out, Wall now has a new source of motivation heading into the upcoming season. "Yeah, definitely, always. You want to make every team you try out for. When you don’t, it’s more motivation for me. "Not even (against) just those (Team USA point guards), but the NBA, period. I guess I’m overlooked again. I guess have to prove myself one more time."

Shortly after he and Wizards teammate John Wall were cut from the Team USA basketball roster for the upcoming FIBA World Cup in Spain, Bradley Beal was back in D.C. making his Goodman League debut Monday at Barry Farm in Southeast. Beal, who was guarded by Goodman League veteran Dele Ojo, scored 33 points and helped his team of amateurs overcome a 12-point deficit in the final six minutes. Washington Post

More than a year after his split from Reebok, Wall has become of the one of the faces of Adidas and said last week that he will have a signature shoe line, complete with a personal logo, released in October. During his time in Las Vegas, Wall got to break in his new sneakers and even put on some of his personal shorts and shirts after removing his Nike-produced USA Basketball gear. Washington Post

Wall signed a five-year, $25 million deal with Reebok before he was drafted by the Wizards, but that relationship came to an end in the third year. With Wall’s career stalled by injury and an unstable Wizards roster, the partnership with Reebok soured and he moved over to Adidas, which owns Reebok. The move took Wall from being the foundation of one brand into a situation where he had to prove his worth as a player to a company that already had a stable of established all-stars.
